Hallo all.
I'm pretty confident this small pot is from the Mousehole Pottery (Bill/Biddy Picard and later their daughter Greta Perry)), but can anyone tell me which of these craft persons actually made the bowl? Is there something in the style which distinguishes each potter?
Thank you.
Jack.

The mark shown in The Digital Museum of Cornish Ceramics is the one used by Greta Perry between 1978 and 1989.

I can clearly see the mouse head and the hole in the wall.

Thats interesting Naomi. I thought this pot couldn't be too old.
Unfortunately Fournier suggests this impressed mark was used in 1954 on domestic ware.

Tbh I’m not seeing a difference in the style of the pots or the mark Shrugs Maybe Greta just continued where her father left off
